The Mark Of Cain at The Zoo (Fortitude Valley, QLD) on Saturday, 10 September 2022

The Mark Of Cain - the band dubbed least likely in their high school year book - return to the road this August/Sep in celebration of their recent induction to the South Australian Music Hall Of Fame.

Comprised of brothers John Scott (vocals and guitar), Kim Scott (bass) and touring drummer Eli Green, The Mark Of Cain have released five albums in their 35-year history including 1989’s debut Battlesick, 1996’s breakthrough Ill At Ease album (included radio hits First Time, LMA) and most recent release Songs Of the Third & Fifth (2012) featuring former Helmet and current Battles and Tomahawk drummer John Stanier.

Along the way TMOC have also achieved a series of first including being the first Australian band to work with legendary producer Steve Albini (Big Black, Nirvana, Page & Plant), the first Australian rock act to crossover into the dance market via their ground breaking work with local DJ / producer Paul Mac (a move later adopted by silverchair among others) and remain the only Australian act to be produced by former Black Flag frontman and US spoken word performer Henry Rollins. They have appeared in the soundtrack to movies Idiot Box (Degenerate Boy), various surf and skate films and had their track The Contender used as the exit music for contestants on TV show Big Brother.

It’s a remarkable achievement, unique, and all done without ever having relocated from their home city of Adelaide.

The Mark Of Cain will play The Zoo on September 10 under the banner A Different Kind Of Tension, a nod to legendary UK proto-punks Buzzcocks and their influential 3rd album of the same name as well as providing the perfect metaphor of the last two years (and counting) of covid-endured isolation.

"I’ve been reading and dipping back into the Buzzcocks for some reason this last few months, and it occurred to me that the whole concept of a Different Kind of Tension is very applicable to everything we’ve felt over the last 2 years, and so wanted a very obvious use of imagery that Malcom Garret used so effectively with The Buzzcocks. A band whose music and artwork influenced me greatly when I was young, dumb and full of…erm…hope.” – John

The Mark of Caine will be joined by Sydney punk powerhouse, Totally Unicorn.
